Santa Claus as a Person of International Concern

25 Dec 2017
Interview with The Hon. Robert French AC
Santa Claus continues to flout international migration laws with impunity

Tis’ that time of year once again, when the smell of gingerbread and the sounds of holiday frivolity melt the cynicism of even the most seasoned of foreign policy analysts. It is perhaps for that reason that a crucial geopolitical blindspot has developed.

The Hon Robert French AC, former chief justice of the High Court of Australia, spoke at the AIIA for WA’s Christmas party¬†on 5 December 2017. The topic of his discussion? A law for Santa Claus as a person of concern to international relations.

The Hon Robert French AC was chief justice of the High Court of Australian between 2008 and 2017.
